Top Ten Tuesday: Backlist Titles I Want To Get To In 2023

Top Ten Tuesday… On A Thursday. Because I scheduled my post wrong and only realized my mistake on Wednesday. Oh well.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is: Most anticipated releases for the first half of 2023. However, I barely have any idea about the upcoming releases, my TBR is still full of backlist titles. So, I decided to give this week’s topic a spin and change it into: Backlist titles I want to get to in 2023.

Here they are, in no particular order:

  • Beautiful Mess by Claire Christian: This book has in fact been on many lists in the past, but I haven’t read it yet. I’ve read It’s a Pleassure, Noni Blake by this author a few years back and I was honestly so displeased. So maybe I’m a little scared for this book, even though the topic is much more serious and the book itsself is older.
  • The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros: Yarros is one of my autobuy authors, but I haven’t even picked this book up. Although I bought it upon release date.
  • The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne: Believe it or not, but I haven’t read this classic yet. Whoops. It has been sitting on my TBR and on my digital shelf for years now, I really need to get to this hey?
  • Instant Karma by Marissa Meyer: Okay okay, I just said in my Cursed review the other day that this is one of y autobuy authors, but I haven’t read this book yet. Maybe it’s because it’s contemporary and it quite flew under te radar. We all know Meyer’s specialty is fantasy, so I’m a little reluctant I suppose.
  • One Of Us Is Next by Karen McManus: Technically One Of Us Is Lying as well, because I’ve DNF’ed that one years ago. However, I found myself being curious for that book again after all these years. I also got myself the sequel as well.
  • I Wish You All The Best by Mason Deaver: I wanted to read this book ever since its release date, but there was no ebook or audiobook available in my country. In September last year, this book got a Dutch translation (yay for this!), so I can finally read it.
  • Kiss & Tell by Adib Khorram: I anticipated this book so much, but I haven’t read it yet. It’s different from Darius, and I really hope to see some growth in this author’s writing.
  • The Murders at Fleat House by Lucinda Riley: Actually I have more backlist books by this author on my TBR so I just picked one. I have read several of Riley’s books, among which is The Seven Sisters series. I really enjoyed them and now it’s time to dive in some other books within her bibliography.
  • Confess by Colleen Hoover: I’ve read many of her books and I’m not that happy with the fact they are all over TikTok now and super popular (often for the wrong reasons regarding the serious issues most stories are about). However, I haven’t read this one yet.
  • Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman: Yet another book that has been on my TBR for way and way to long. I’m still really curious for this, although I kind of forgot about its existence.

Do you have any backlist titles you want to get to this year? Or have you read any of these?
